Alia Bhatt dropped the ‘first look’ of her upcoming movie ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ on social media on Wednesday.
The versatile actress is set to play a ‘mafia queen’ in the movie—and the posters, in which Bhatt can be seen gazing intensely, seem to completely justify her fierce role. The movie is being directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and is being produced by Bhansali and Jayantilal Gada.
The look, as shared by Alia on Instagram is a black-and-white close-up of her face, enhaanced with a red bindi, a nose ring and dark-kohled eyes. Alia looks intense in the image.
The actress captioned the picture: "Here she is, Gangubai Kathiawadi."
Alia's "Gully Boy" co-star Ranveer Singh couldn't wait to comment. He wrote: "Here she is indeed Lulu the Gangster. come onnn."
The "Raazi" star shared another look, where she is seen sitting near a table with a pistol lying on it. She is seen dressed in skirt-blouse and sports a bindi.
Ranveer's wife and actress Deepika Padukone commented: "Love".
According to reports, "Gangubai Kathiawadi" revolves around Gangubai Kothewali, a brothel owner and matriarch. The film is based on Hussain Zaidi's book "Mafia Queens Of Mumbai".
